Guilford College Reviews
For the most part, I enjoy my classes at Guilford College. My professors are quite engaging and the campus life is great due to the organizations that exist for all varieties of students. My main problem with it is that discussion classes are often lacking, as people do not often contribute to class discussions. Lecture classes are excellent!
I'm an adult student so I cannot comment on dorm conditions or anything like that. My experience with professors has been great! That's the key to success at Guilford and lots of other schools. Talk to advisors and other students to get a feel for various professors in whatever your major is, then take classes with the ones you feel you'll mesh well with. I would definitely choose this school again if I had it to do all over again. Class sizes are really small and we call professors by first names. Quakers are very unassuming people and don't go in much for flashiness or titles. I've learned so much in my time here and I can clearly see the difference in myself image and my entire thinking process since starting my college career here. They stress critical thinking and boy, do I think critically all the time now. This is a writing intensive school so if you don't like to write, or don't want to learn to write, you probably should go somewhere else!
Guilford College was a great fit for me for college. It can be rather inconsistent--I had some horrible teachers and boring classes and I had some of the most amazing professors I could imagine. If you found the subjects with the good teachers, it can be a really phenomenal educational experience. There are some budget issues that seem to be causing questionable decisions by the administration, which worries me for the future of the school.
